On November 10th 2019, the OVO rapper was booed off of the Tyler the Creator festival stage, Camp Flog Gnaw. Festival attendees created an assumption of the surprise guest to be Frank Ocean, however when they realized that was not the case they responded with disrespect. Drake kept his professionalism when the booing took place and asked the crowd if they wanted to keep going, the crowd responding no he signs off by saying "Its been love, I go by the name of Drake, thanks for having me".
Tyler the Creator responded to the disrespect of his friend via twitter "I THOUGHT BRINGING ONE OF THE BIGGEST ARTIST ON THE FUCKING PLANET TO A MUSIC FESTIVAL WAS FIRE! BUT FLIPSIDE, A LIL TONE DEAF KNOWING THE SPECIFIC CROWD IT DREW. SOME CREATED A NARRATIVE IN THEIR HEAD AND ACTED OUT LIKE ASSHOLES WHEN IT DIDNT COME TRUE AND I DONT FUCK WITH THAT"
Drake responds Nov. 11th, with some comedy via instagram captioned "Plot twist...just signed a 10 year residency at Camp Flog Gnaw sorry kids see you EVERY SINGLE YEAR till you are 30 🤪"
The fans were out of line clearly but Drake seems pretty unfazed if you ask me. Not to mention this was a learning experience for Festival host Tyler the Creator to chose performers according to his target audience.
